Switzerland
I'm an ongoing scientific illustrator studying Scientific Visualization at the ZHdK in Zurich and I'm currently in my second year of studies after I studied Biology for five semesters at the UZH in Zurich. Though I study and live most of the week in a flat in Zurich with my roomies, I spend most of my weekends and holidays at home in Zernez in the middle of the Engadin valley.

My interests are biology, especially zoology, paleontology and evolution, since I always loved to know about nature and it's inhabitants. I'm also interested in medicine, history (Vikings, Germans, Romans, Rhaetians and other ancient cultures), enviromental science and geoscience ranging from Earth to extraplanetar systems. I also keep pets (birds, fish, amphibians), go hunt, hike and dive. It's safe to say that I got a very vast field of interests.
One of my other great passions besides of science are sci-fi and gaming, meaning that I'm a sucker for the Aliens (AvP) and the Halo franchise. Though I tend to draw a lot of fanart in my spare time, I'm not one of those weird fangirls. I'm quite a reasonable fan.
If you look at my gallery, you'll mostly find either scientific stuff like paleontology or zoology I do at the university or sci-fi and fanart I do in my spare time :)

My mother tongue is Rumansh but I speak German fluently as well and I'm quite good with English. I also understand a good part from French and Italian and to a certain degree Spanish. As you see, communication shouldn't be a problem if you do want to speak about my art. Comments of any kind are welcomed! :D

Fair use: You are free to spread my art and show it wherever you want, as long as you're not selling or making profit with it. However I'd then like you to credit me for it by linking to my profile or at least mention my name. Ask me first, if you want to use parts of my art for your own non-profit artistic projects (collage). Do not trace my art, use my art as a base, remove my signature from my art or pretend it to be your own art.
Interests
Wow, I've been for a study journey to Italy (Bolzano/Bozen and Bologna) for a week and meanwhile we didn't only hit 60'000 pageviews but also got 450 watchers! HIGH FIVE! :D
But yeah, thanks a lot for your support and I really hope I didn't missed anyone of you to thank for your support individually. That's my way of thanking you for your support for all those years ^^

I'm pretty busy the coming three weeks since I got to write my Bachelor thesis in art (yep, color reconstruction in dinosaurs), so I sadly doubt that there will be much art in that time. That really bugs me, since I still got some Christmas art that needs to be finished and will now be out late as hell :/
Oh well. Thanks again for all your support and let's see if we can beat 70'000 pageviews :D

Do you consider artists thanking you for faves on your page as nice or rather annoying?

When was the last time you heard from EroomAlly? I'm a little worried about her.

I'm just a little concerned is all. We normally talk on a daily bases and all of a sudden she's been gone for ages without so much as a peep.

She seemed pretty normal and happy when I spoke last to her. If something's wrong then she didn't showed it there.
